Summer Beauty Shortcuts + Giveaway!  

PG-foundation Just when I think I know almost everything there is to know about beauty products, something comes along and completely surprises me. I had been to Sally Beauty back in high school, for my favorite Queen Helene Mint Julep mask, but knew from our resident Beauty Thrifter and Sally die-hard, Meghan, that it was time to re-acquaint myself. You guys. We have been missing out! Sally Beauty carries everything you need for a spa day at home (foot detox, anyone?), legit dupes of high-end haircare lines, and professional mani/pedi supplies galore (I’m dying to try this cuticle remover!). It was a revelation. Or a shopping spree. I came home with this haul and life has been easier ever since—especially because during the month of August you’ll receive a FREE tote bag when you buy $45 worth of product at Sally Beauty. I’ve been using my gold one for weekend jaunts to the farmer’s market! sallybeautysummerproducts (clockwise) Power IQ Round Wood Brush ($5) – A round brush is essential for achieving a proper blow-out at home. The combination of bristles and sturdy wooden handle (hard to beat for the price!) makes for easy wielding through all hair types. // Femme Couture Super Juicies in Creamy Pink ($5) – The perfect pale pink gloss. Dab on a little for a neutral daytime shine or layer on over your favorite nude lipstick and pair with a smoky for one of summer’s favorite looks. // Ardell Individual Flares ($5) – Once you get the hang of individual lashes, you’ll want to wear them every day. Ardell’s are super-natural looking, especially in the short length. Apply just in the corners for a subtly glamorous, eye-opening effect. // Miracle 7 Finishing Spray ($11) – I rarely meet a hairspray that I love (who wants sticky, crunchy strands?!), but this one sealed the deal when it kept my hair smooth and frizz-free on a humid day. Miracle indeed. // Vintage Glam Texturizing Powder ($8) – One part dry shampoo, one part volumizer, this magical powder in the pretty canister gives my long, fine hair instant lift when rubbed in at the roots.//Femme Mattifying Powder ($11) – I like dewy skin as much as the next girl, but only when it’s well placed. Worn alone or over tinted moisturizer, a dusting of this translucent powder on the t-zone keeps skin flawless for hours. So good, right?
